Meet Willow, Bliz and Snow!! They're off to Heartland later today and will be up for adoption there once they hit the magic two pound mark and get fixed.
They're Sophie's kittens. Sophie is another white female, down where I tried to catch the long hair white stray female, Snowball, but never did. Instead I caught five boys, and got them fixed.
Two of those boys were all white too---Fletcher, who was returned, because he is fed by the same people who own white Sophie. Astro, however, another big white male, went to Heartland and eventually got a home.
Fletcher was fixed late March just days after Sophies' kittens were born. Her owners gave the kittens up last night. They are now nearly seven weeks old and so adorable.
Three girls! One short hair white---Bliz, a girl. One long hair white---Snow, a girl. And then little Willow, a brown tabby tux girl.

Sophie, their mom, will be fixed next Monday.
Today, two cats from south Albany are up being fixed in Salem. Their people say they showed up a few months ago, with two kittens, whom they assume are the kittens of the mackerel tabby. I did not have a chance to actually "sex" either cat before taking them up to the clinic, but I did note that the alleged mother isn't lactating at all. They're a bit skittish, the two adults, but not feral. They live outside, and I think they put the kittens inside, in the crate to keep them safe. Lots of cats have vanished in the last two months at that complex.
I saw the gray tabby male kitten they keep in a crate inside, to protect him from their doberman. He looks to be 8 weeks of age. I asked if they would give him up, but they were not sure. They say their son, who is under ten, gave away the second kitten.
At least the two adults will now be fixed.
And Sophie's kittens will be at Heartland, fostered til 8 weeks, then.....stand in line!! They're spectacular.
And when I took the three girl kittens to Heartland, I heard Benji, the teen male from the trailer park in Sweet Home (photo below) was getting a home right as I left. Good luck, kiddo.
